If you like to keep on paddling through the winter, your hands don't need to be cold, painful or numb. Palm make a range of handwear designed to keep your paws warm and working as they should even in icy conditions, and improve your comfort and enjoyment in cold paddling.
Palm offer several different types of cold weather handwear, all of which have advantages and disadvantages, so here's a quick guide to what's available.
Most insulating gloves are made from Neoprene - it's warm, stretchy and allowing for good flexibility and dexterity. Among the features on our gloves you'll find rubberized patterns to improve grip and durability, and a 'pre-bent' shape to make holding a paddle easier. Our Pro and Throttle gloves are also reinforced with durable materials across the palm to protect your hands when handling ropes and other safety gear.
For kayaking a great option is the mitt, which envelops both hand and paddle, removing spray and wind chill altoghether whilst allowing you to grip your paddle directly. These offer full contact and control of your paddle shaft. Palm mitts are available in neoprene versions for whitewater, and nylon for touring.
